The storm swirling around the Miami Dolphins is getting worse by the day.
It began over allegations offensive lineman Incognito bullied Martin,another lineman, so badly he left the team, CNN's John Zarrella reports.
Now, a report that at least one coach told Incognito, the anointed leader of the offensive line, to get Martin toughened up.
Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin, surrounded by more media than any four and four football team usually gets, defended his team.
Philbin said, "I have full faith and confidence that we will stick together as a team."
But, Philbin refused to address whether he or any of his coaches instructed Richie Incognito to toughen up another player, Jonathan Martin. When asked, "Did Martin need toughening up?" Philbin said, "Jonathan Martin came in here and worked hard every single day."
While Philbin had little to say, some of his players actually came to the defense of Incognito saying he wasn't a bully but a best friend.
